I am running Lion Server and I wanted to renew our Server Apple Push Certificate.

When I attempt to renew the certificate I get the mesage that the certificate cannot be renewed and that I have to re-create a new certificate.

According to Server App the certificate is still valid for approx. 6 weeks, but on Apple's Certificate Portal the certificates are still valid until Jul 2013.


Apart from the strange validity mismatch, does anybody know how to re-create an APN Certificate ?

Do I have to create a  new Apple ID ?


Thanks for helping,

    That worked for me!!!!  Thanks!!!


    Kind of made me feel like I was in Windows though for a minute there with the anti-logic.

    ...but yeah..that's pretty@ssbackwards...Renew should mean "Renew". I guess it's such the world we live in.
